"A riveting read from beginning to end...the kind of novel that blockbuster movies are made. Very highly recommended..."

"Big Pharma means big money and when a new drug that just might help the paralyzed to walk is developed, greed, corruption, and even murder aren't far behind. NERVE DAMAGE is a wild ride through the worlds of acute medicine and the pharmaceutical trade. Highly recommended."

"...I couldn't put this book down...Dr. Combs has captured the essence of what doctors, nurses, police, firefighters, and medics do on a daily basis and intertwined that with the suspense and thrills of a murder mystery. I highly recommend this book..."
